Photographer's Note

Greek:
Γεφύρι μεταξύ Ξάνθης και Σταυρούπολης.
Είναι δίτοξο με τρία ανακουφιστικά ανοίγματα. Το πλάτος του μεγάλου τόξου είναι περίπου 12 μ.

O ποταμός Κόσυνθος ρέει αποκλειστικά μέσα στα όρια του ελληνικού εδάφους. Πηγάζει από τις κορυφές τις Κούλας (κεντρική Ροδόπη) διασχίζει τα Πομακοχώρια, περνά από τον παραδοσιακό οικισμό της Ξάνθης και, αφού ανοιχτεί στην πεδιάδα, εκβάλλει στα βορειοδυτικά της λίμνης Βιστωνίδας.
Το όνομα του ποταμού Κόσυνθου στα αρχαία χρόνια ήταν Κοσσινίτης.

Kosynthos river flows exclusively on the borders of the open surface. Its fountains come from the tops of Koulas (central Rodopi), crosses Pomakochoria, passes through the traditional settlement of Xanthi and after it spreads to the valley, it washes up to the north-west of Vistonida lake.

The name of Kosynthos river in the ancient years was �Kossinitis�
